Breastfeeding Issues: Nursing and Hating It
If I had had even the slightest idea how hard nursing would be ... well, OK, I'd still be breastfeeding
. But if someone had warned me, at least I would have been somewhat prepared.
I expected the soreness and bleeding nipples. But I did not expect that my baby would want to feed 24/7 and that I would be completely emotionally drained by the experience. I find it very disheartening that my baby only sees me as a cow, but she loves to hang out with and nap on her daddy.
She is only one week old. How much longer does this go on? When will she see me as more than the milk truck? Someone please be honest with me!
